The mixed-metal ruthenium-copper cluster dianion [{Ru6Cu2C(CO)16}2Cl 2]2- 1 has been synthesised in quantitative yield from [Ru6C(CO)16]2- and CuCl; the crystal structure of the [N(PPh3)2]+ salt shows that the two Ru6 octahedra are linked by a rectangular planar arrangement of copper atoms two opposite edges of which are bridged by chlorine atoms.
